How to Make a Flower Crown

Flower crown making is creativity at its best and it's surprisingly easy to do. In this post, I'll teach you how to make a flower crown for yourself with a few easy steps. We're all guilty of living in a whirlwind of work, social time, family time, eat and sleep, but I certainly feel its important to slow down and have quiet time to create. Plus, they say finding your inner child is good for you and this flower girl is one happy princess. 

What you'll need:

  • Flowers & foliage (I used "The Maya" by Bloom&Wild)
  • Wax floristry tape, like this
  • Wire, like this
  • 1 metre of ribbon
  • Scissors

Step by step guide:

First, measure your wire on the front of your head like a headband, leaving an inch or two behind your ears. Bend each end into loops, big enough for your ribbon to be tied through. Cover any sticking out wire by wrapping your floristry tape over the join. Layer the floristry tape at a 45 degree angle when wrapping, working down the wire as opposed to layering it directly on top of itself.

In preparation for adding your flowers, tear off pieces of floristry tape at about an inch or two in length. Start cutting the tops off of your foliage and flowers that you wish to incorporate into the crown, but be sure to leave a few inches of stem and don't cut them too short. Sort your flowers into piles by type, then choose your first piece of foliage. Hiding the wire loop, attach the foliage to the end of your crown using one of your teared pieces of tape. Next put together a small bunch of two and attach this to the wire, slightly downward from your first attachment. Each time you add a new piece, try to add in a left, right formation so that your flower crown is beautifully balanced. 

Once you've reached the end of your flower crown, be sure to add a piece of foliage in the alternate direction to conceal the second wire loop from sight. Cut your ribbon in half, and tie each piece of ribbon at either end of your crown. Take your crowning moment and tie your flower crown on your head. Ta-dah!
